Welcome to Cherrydale's Third Grade

The third grade at Cherrydale Elementary will be setting goals and aiming high! Third graders at our school receive many practical lessons that will set the stage for success in later grades, while preparing them effectively to reach proficiency or advanced levels on the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards Test (PASS). 

Our grade level integrates learning in all subjects through the use of the Four Blocks model for language arts and the Four Frames math model. Compass Learning Odyssey enables the student to use technology for social studies concepts, such as Native Americans, and science concepts, such as plants.
